Steak and Smoked Gouda Alfredo


I’m playing restaurant wars again. When I can’t figure out what to cook, I think about my favorite dishes at different restaurants. Then, I try to recreate them at home. For my birthday this year, I went to a local restaurant and ordered their Steak and Smoked Gouda Alfredo. It was delicious. It features sirloin on angel hair pasta (my fave!) covered with a smoked Gouda cream sauce. Then, they top it with tomatoes, bacon, green onions, and more Gouda. It’s dreamy. 

I’m not a fan of bacon. Yes, I know. So, I left it out. But, of course, you may add it to yours. Just fry it before making your sauce. Then use the grease to saute the garlic and proceed with the recipe. I also opted for Linguine instead of angel hair. I’m ALWAYS using angel hair, so I decided to give it a break. Just for today though! Angel hair is bae.

As for the steak, I like mine Medium to Medium Well. So, cook yours to your liking. Use the “palm test” to determine how done the steak is while cooking. Think the thickness of the steak in mind as well. I also like to keep the seasoning very simple in this recipe. I didn’t want any rubs to alter the flavors of the pasta too much.

What are some of your favorite restaurant dishes that you’d like to learn how to recreate at home? Let me know in the comments!
